Re: “Crisis at 60

There is nothing cathartic about the 60th anniversary of Central High. The de jure and de facto laws that attempted to maintain segregation at Central High and schools in the U. S. are not anachronistic, the rules are revised modern warefare to have more devastating effects.

Re: “Grappling with Little Rock violence means grappling with race

Mayor Mark Stodola said, " poverty, lack of education and no aspirations for the future, it only reinforces to do something terrible in the streets." Poverty, lack of education and no aspirations are contributIng elements, but the violence in America is attributed to all of the Dachaus, the Auschwitzes, Slavery, the Virgin Soil Epidemics and Native Depopulation, the Japanese Internment Camps, the Lynching Era, the War on Drugs, 3 Strikes You Are Out, Islamophobia, Mexican immigrants; all of them, all of the human slaughter, all of the crimes against humanity, all the injustices. That's what this is Mayor, crimes against humanity. And so, from the words of Malcolm X, "when the chickens come home to roost," to have unfavorable repercussions or aftereffects.

Re: “'Black Lives Matter' tees pulled from gift shop at Mosaic Templars

Quantia Fletcher, interim director of the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center said, "we have to think about whether or not it would be an item (Black Lives Matter t-shirts) that was something that may cause people to feel a particular way – whether or not we were being culturally sensitive." The t-shirt slogan, the crusade, the movement is offensive only to those who are complicit in a country with a well documented history of systematic and individual discrimination against the well-being of people of color. It's about America and its legacy of deeply embedded racism.
